Marco Rubio's Catholic Faith Attacked at 'March For Our Lives'

Combined Shape

Liberals stand for tolerance and diversity, while it’s conservatives and NRA members who are hateful.

At least, that’s the message being spread throughout much of the traditional media, and by anti-Second Amendment activists who have been given a spotlight.

In the wake of the Parkland school shooting, outspoken anti-gun figures like student David Hogg have acted as if people on the right are malevolent … but a giant sign spotted at the “March For Our Lives” event just showed the left’s true colors.

“On Saturday, as thousands of far-left activists gathered on the streets of Washington, D.C., to demand gun control, a group of people in attendance used signs to attack Sen. Marco Rubio’s faith,” The Daily Wire reported.

Rubio is a Catholic Christian and a Republican senator from Florida, where the recent tragedy took place.

“One sign featured a picture of Rubio with blood on his head, calling him a #KidKiller and #NRAbitch as it mocked the Catholic faith’s Ash Wednesday, referring to it as #AshBloodyWednesday,” explained Daily Wire.

Remember, this was a rally that was billed as non-political and a way for people of all backgrounds to come together.

Welcome to the “diversity” and “tolerance” of the modern left: A Catholic family man and father of four children is now attacked as a “kid killer” because he happens to share the faith of over 70 million other Americans (and over 1 billion people worldwide).

Are conservatives being purposely slandered by the anti-rights left?

This, somehow, is supposed to inspire unity and joint solutions to the problem of violent school crime.

What has Marco Rubio done to deserve being portrayed with blood on his face and slammed as a killer of children? His main “offense” appears to be merely believing in God and leaning conservative.

Of course, the actual killing of children — or “fetuses” in Latin — isn’t enough for liberals to reject Catholics on their own side.

Even after Democrats including former Sen. John Kerry and Sen. Dick Durbin were ex-communicated by the church for their aggressive support of late term abortion, the left continued to support them, while shrugging off the incongruity between their alleged faith and un-Catholic political stances.

Ironically, Rubio is one lawmaker who has been taking the school shooting issue most seriously. He proposed a school safety plan that included real-world solutions to the problem.

Rubio “said he is looking into efforts to strengthen school security, provide school training to identify threats and create a school threat assessment intervention teams, which would coordinate between law enforcement and other state agencies to flag students who could be violent,” CNN explained.

“Rubio also pressed his colleagues to support the ‘Fix NICs’ legislation introduced by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn and Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy, which would offer financial incentives for federal and state authorities to comply with existing law to report criminal history records to the system,” the news network continued.

In other words, he’s actively reaching across the political aisle to get results, and even considering ideas from Democrats.

This is the evil enemy that “March For Our Lives” has decided to attack?

Once again, it seems that not only are these activists clueless when it comes to guns and crime statistics, they also have no idea about politics — or common decency.
